    More than one with a mind like that? That doesn't bode well for society.

    Speaking as one with limited social skills might I point out that forums like these are practically designed to act as refuges from the world at large. I have often found that all it takes is a desire to engage politely.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    You are still looking for that desire then?

    Meanwhile, would you like to see the left side of my desk? I've decided it needs tidying.

    I'm not sure how it ended up here, to be honest. It was at inside one of the boxes of books.

    I don't agree with spreading it all around though, I'm not convinced it helps it just makes people suspicious of you. Other places will soon get the measure of him.

    Spot, I hope you know I was just having some fun. I apologize if I offended you in any way. The devices I was referring to are muscle massagers.

    Not at all, fun is one of those odd areas I attempt to explore on occasion but for the life of me I can't grasp the idea at all. I do keep trying though, much to the annoyance of those within earshot.

    As for the device you describe I have serious doubts it actually exists, I've certainly never encountered one.

    The photo I took missed my inkwell, I quite like my inkwell. Let me try again.






    Aficionados will recognize a Vista sticker on the laptop I perversely continue to use 4 years after I picked it up on eBay for £60. And the sprocket holes on the computer listing paper.

    And yes, that really is a genuine stickered Microsoft Basic Optical Mouse v2 model 113. Perfection shouldn't be imitated. Thank you Mr Gates.

    I'd also mention that the 48°C on the panel is lower than the laptop would have shown when new under Vista, unlike the xfce displayed. A CPU passmark of 1,453 isn't really sensible on the Internet Highway any longer but I'm stubborn that way. Today's laptop of choice gives 10,000 using a bare 15W processor and desktops are at 30,000.

    What other parsimonious bits are to hand. This bit's fun, there's a LAMP+SAMBA server somewhere in the building which cost me £5 new and runs my son's domain and a few oddments.
